When should I get my bike fit?

With the competitive mountain bike, road bike, triathlon and duathlon seasons coming to an end and cyclocross season really heating up with national championships being held this weekend in Winnipeg, MB, people have been asking me a lot lately what the best time of year to get a bike fit is.

A WN Precision bike fit and pedal stroke education session is all about giving each rider the necessary tools to create better in the saddle habits and decisions which guarantee improved efficiency, increased power output and decrease the likely hood of any repetitive strain injury. We are not simply all about seat height, fore/aft position, effective body extension, handlebar drop and proper cleat placement, but we give you the knowledge to train your legs and brain to beat the competition and become a WN’er!

Changing bad habits takes time. After a session with me, on the bike muscle adaption typically requires 60 days in the saddle before your body establishes new muscle motor patterns. Coming in to have your fit done between November and January will allow you to refine these skills while riding a trainer or rollers in a controlled environment over the winter months, so in the spring, your competitive season will start with plenty of WN’s.
